HOME » FOOTBALL » Top 10 Players Who Have Won the Champions League With 2 Different Clubs

Spain held the frustrating draw vs Greece in the opening fixture of the 2022 world cup qualifier.

It was a hard day for Spain after they were held to a 1-1 draw in their opening fixture against Greece. The game was a qualifying match for the 2022 World Cup which was held on Thursday.

Alvaro Morata was the first player to register his names on the scoresheet after he scored a close-range clinical finish goal against Greece assisted by Dani Olmo just after 32 minutes.

However, things started turning out for Greeks as they gifted a penalty after the substitute Inigo Martinez had been penalized for his rash tackle against the Greek midfielder Giorgos Masouras.

Martinez on the other side was not at all happy with the decision, he insisted to go for VAR for the validity of the decision during the match.

He added, “Obviously, I’m not at all happy. It’s a moment that they make you pay for. We’re not satisfied with the draw and with the implementation of VAR it would’ve been a different story,”.

“It’s a 50-50 challenge and I have to get there to defend it. I can’t hold myself. I pull my leg away after the tackle and I don’t mean to do any damage. He was sharp and stayed down, It’s also strange that the referee took so long to blow it for a penalty. It was the pivotal moment in the game.”

Anastasios Bakasetas has taken the advantage of the penalty and scored it against Spain to astonish Luis Enrique’s side.

Luis Enrique added, “I’m not a fan of the result at all, we wanted that little bit of influence,”. “What I did like was the character and the rhythm of the players, but when we got approaching Greece’s box we weren’t at it.

“We lack to generate more threat. We seize the opponent back into their box but we just didn’t have the fire or conceive the chance you want to make at this level.”

Morata got another chance later in the game but he headed straight to the keeper. Spain was in complete control of the game what they lacked is to convert those chances into goals.

Spain has a game against Georgia in their second qualifier on Sunday. We have to wait and see will Spain does a comeback in the second qualifier.
